When Protein isn't Enough - AfterGlow is the Answer
Mom always said, "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day". Well it's time to call home and teach mom a thing or two about the one meal you'll never miss again.
Nutritional Demands of Training
During any given training session, our bodies pull on stored glycogen as fuel for muscle contraction, strength and endurance. Amino acids, vitamin and nutrient levels are all heavily taxed in a typical 45 minute session. Creatine and ATP serum counts are now at lower points. And to make things worse, cortisol levels (muscle eating hormone) are at their highest. Your body may be aboue to use muscle as an energy source!* Your favorite protein drink, or your mom, can't save you now...
AfterGlow is the solution for the post workout catabolic blues.* Contrary to popular belief, high levels of protein directly after a training session may not properly replenish vital nutrients and save depleted and torn muscle fibers.* In fact, several non-biased research studies prove excessive protein intake after a workout provides little to no physiological advantage whatsoever!*
Related research suggests skipping this meal is a one way ticket to catabolism.* This means if you plan on skipping your post workout meal, do yourself a favor and just skip the workout.
What's in AfterGlow and how does it work?
There are eight components to a timely and complete recovery. If you miss one or more recovery components, a portion of the time spent training will be wasted.
Simply stated, the faster and more complete a recovery - the faster and more complete your body will change. Below is a chart of what is in AfterGlow, why you need it and how it works:
After a Workout, Research Suggests...*
Simple and complex carbs support muscle glycogen.* 1, 2, 5
Over 30 grams of all natural evaporated cane juice and complex carbohydrates.
Moderate levels of a fast acting high quality protein and essential amino acids (EAA’s).3
20 grams of WPI, the highest quality EAA’s & fastest acting complete protein on the planet earth.
High dosed free form amino acids to help accelerate recovery and suport an anabolic environment.* 4 & 7
Over 10 grams of l-glutaime and BCAA AKG.
Little or no fat to impede speed of absorption.2
A form of creatine to replenish muscle ATP.6
1000mg of KreAlkalyn (U.S. Patent# 6,399,661), the only creatine pH buffered to remain stable in liquid.
Post workout hormone cortisol can trigger muscle atrophy (shrinkage). 8
800mg of phosphatidylserine
Catabolic free radicals and metabolic waste can impede growth and recovery.9
Nearly 2000mg of powerful free radical scavengers and antioxidants.
Additional anabolic agents can help recovery and build muscle if all other criteria are met.
1000mg of cissus quadrangularis (50mg 3-ketosteroids), the new superstar of herbal anabolics
Users of supplements who drink a shake they consider bad tasting are 60% more likely to quit before the bottle is empty.
An excellent flavoring system that transforms the most advanced anabolic recovery supplement into a fruit flavored drink that you’ll want to chug.
